  • Linda,

    So sorry for your loss. Joan and Dennis were in school with me and I occasionally called Anna to chat about what was going on in town. She really loved you and Willie. A super lady and she will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy to you and all the families.

  • Carol and Linda,

    Anna was a wonderful person, I have known her since 1969 and she was our accountant. Anna also helped me to get my last job from which I have retired. Always known her to have a smile on her face no matter how she was feeling or the work load she was having. She really loved her kids and grand kids.

    Thinking of all of you.

  • My sincere condolences …Anna was always smart and “with it” unafraid to speak out and help people and projects in need. We served together on the Station Break Board and she left her mark in advocating for the Seniors in need.

  • Linda,

    It broke my heart to learn of your mom’s death. She was like a “second mom” to Tom. We always thought the world of her. I just returned from the month of February in Florida, when I received the sad news. Just before I left, I saw your mom at KCH, where I volunteer in Central Registration. My last words to her were “I love you”. I know in my heart she is in a better place, free of pain.

    Please take care. If you need anything, please don’t hesitate to call me at 740-504-8191. That is my cell phone, which I carry with me always.

    I know Denny and Tom were waiting at the gates of Heaven for her.

    Love to you and your family,


  • Anna was my “other half” for years and I sure missed her when she retired. She remains such a part of who I am today and that continues everyday to be a blessing. Her voice will always be part of my thoughts. She was one amazing woman. Bless your hearts, I know she leaves a large hole in your lives, because she does in mine.

  • Linda, and family

    I was so sorry to hear about Anna.
    We always loved seeing her when she came to visit us at KCHS.
    She was great lady.

    Prayers for all.

  • My deepest sympathy to all of the family at your loss. Anna always made you feel like family, like a son — as Denny and Tom McLarlan and I were always great friends. I always stopped to visit with Anna when I came back to Mt Vernon — made me feel closer to Denny whom I’ve so missed throughout these years. Anna was a friend to all she met — a wise and very intelligent woman — she will be missed by all who came in contact with her.

  • Linda,
    I was so sorry to read in the paper of Anna’s passing. Her zest for life and her kindness to others were qualities I found very special. When she did my taxes and I went in to pick up my papers, our chats could be long and always enjoyable. All my best to her family and friends–she will be greatly missed.
